It seems that ASIMO has a new trick up his sleeve. Hiroshi Okuno and Kazuhiro Nakadai have devised HARK, a new software that allows the bot to differentiate between 3 humans with 70 to 80% accuracy. Known as the "cocktail party effect," the technology utilizes 8 mics to isolate one from the others by speech-recognition. ASIMO is so far only involved in rock-paper-scissors contests but imagine the next step when it can not only tell who is who, but starts carrying on conversations.
